# Optimization Problem - Calculus

## Homework Statement

A cylindrical shaped tin can must have a volume of 1000cm3.

Find the dimensions that require the minimum amount of tin for the can (Assume no waste material). The smallest can has a diameter of 6cm and a height of 4 cm.

## Homework Equations

$$V = \pi r^{2}h$$

$$P = 2( \pi r^{2}) + (2 \pi r)h$$

## The Attempt at a Solution

I basically start off by isolating a variable:

$$V = \pi r^{2}h$$

$$1000 = \pi r^{2}h$$

$$318.3 = r^{2}h$$

$$r^{2} = \frac{318.3}{h}$$

This is where I'm stuck. Do I plug this into the surface area formula.
I know I have to sub this into something else, and then expand and find the derivative of that new equation to find where h > 4.
Just need to find out what to do next from here.

Thanks for any help!
